We made a new footstool for our antique chair.
We made this little footstool to match the antique chair
in our Family room...
First the chair history, it belonged to the head knots Grandfather.
It was covered in a green worn out leather, and was down our
basement for years. Then about five years ago, we bought
a new leather sofa and stripped off the old leather from
our old sofa and used it to
reupholstered this chair. This was our first attempt at sewing leather.
Since then we've re-upholstered another chair in the same room in leather.
I'm pretty sure I showed you the other leather chair and footstool.
I love matching matching footstools, and glad we scurried up enough
leather to do this. I finished up adding the trim last night. The legs on
the footstool we cut off from the bottom of my Mothers old mahagony
coffee table, (the bottom has wheels)
I think it adds a cozy layer to the chair.
The entire chair...
Wow that's awesome Two Knots. I also like that you were able to incorporate another antique in the making of the stool. I also like the star of the picture......the daaaawg.
Great job!!!!! And love your old Boston, great dogs, and ill bet she loves the chair.
Looking nice and you did a great work.
Thanks forcedreno, mr.woody,and alexjo for taking the time
to comment on the chair. :yes:
That chair is amazing. It's even more amazing since now it has a place to rest your feet and incorporated old into new.
Love the chair and the footstool! Great job with the leather. Looks so neat.
And I really LOVE the throw. Very nice.
Thanks Kimber and Yummy,
We just winged this footstool, (as compared to
other footstools we've made) ...to be more specific
I haven't given it any forethought to make it fit under the chair...
but, luckily it does, as our little grandkids love jumping
off our footstools. Now I can just slip this one under the
chair when they visit. Since this footstool is on wheels,
jumping off this one could be dangerous.
Yummy mummy, I love animal prints, and try and use them a lot
in various rooms; they liven up throw pillows and chairs with
throws...etc...In this same room we made Roman Shades out of
velour and trimmed them in a tiger print.
